The investment seeks an annual rate of total return, before fund expenses, greater than the annual rate of total return of the Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond Index. The fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets in the following types of U.S. dollar‑denominated debt obligations: U.S. government and other public‑sector entities; asset‑backed and mortgage‑backed obligations of U.S. and foreign issuers; corporate debt of U.S. and foreign issuers. It only invests in debt obligations rated investment grade at the time of purchase by at least one major rating agency or, if unrated, determined by Robert W. Baird & Co. Incorporated to be investment grade.
The investment seeks to maximize total return through income and capital appreciation. Under normal market conditions, the fund invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus borrowings for investment purposes) in a portfolio of bonds, including but not limited to corporate, government and mortgage bonds, which, at the time of purchase, are rated investment-grade (e.g., rated at least BBB- by Standard & Poor's Ratings Services or Baa3 by Moody's Investors Service, Inc.) or have an equivalent rating by a nationally recognized statistical rating organization ("NRSRO"), or are of comparable quality if unrated.
The investment seeks maximum current income without undue risk to principal. The fund invests its assets primarily in U.S. dollar-denominated debt securities, including, among others, obligations of U.S., state and local governments, their agencies and instrumental mortgage- and asset-backed securities, corporate debt securities and repurchase agreements that have been selected for their high yields relative to the risk involved. The fund will invest primarily in investment-grade securities but also may invest up to 10% of its net assets in below-investment-grade securities, which are sometimes referred as high-yield or "junk" bonds.

The fees, balance and savings information above are estimated numbers, based on the data FeeX had at the day of publication, but may not be accurate due to incomplete or erroneous data.

The best choice is based on a combined analysis of lowest fees and highest similarity to the original fund.


FeeX's similarity algorithm analyzes over 15 investment characteristics like investment category, asset allocation, strategy, geographical allocation and more. FeeX gives each its own weight and calculates the similarity of any two investments based on a scale of 0 to 100%. Funds with a similarity ranking of 85% and higher are considered "similar".

Yes, funds and ETFs charge fees

Deep within every fund you own lies a hidden fee called expense ratio. It takes away a set % of your savings each and every year. It can often be easily reduced by switching to similar investments with lower expense ratios.
